About this Course

In this culmination course, you’ll develop, articulate, share and refine your coaching philosophy. This is an online course, with a one-day, all-class, real-time online session and nine self-paced online sessions.

In the one-day, real-time session, you’ll meet with your classmates in Zoom breakout rooms to deepen your understanding and practice of effective coaching skills, including coaching for trauma-informed care. You’ll learn how to conduct an instructional coaching session about trauma and develop strategies and resources for practicing trauma-informed care with your clients.

In the nine self-paced online sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to do a deep reflection on your development as a culturally responsive coach through self-guided Canvas modules. You’ll cover topics such as culturally responsive coaching, portfolio documentation and critical reflection. You’ll practice coaching through a full rotation of the Practice-Based Coaching cycle and gain feedback on your coaching sessions from your instructor and peers.

The course culminates with an e-portfolio capstone project. This portfolio can complement your resume and provide tangible examples of what you've learned and applied in this program, including portfolio documentation, caseload management and presentations.
